London — ABC Studios is to shoot the pilot for its musical comedy fairytale “Galavant” in the U.K. It is ABC’s first show to take advantage of the U.K.’s new tax credit for high-end television shows.

The show, which is penned, created and exec produced by Dan Fogelman (“Cars,” “The Guilt Trip,” “The Neighbors”), toplines Joshua Sasse (“Rogue”) as handsome Prince Galavant, who seeks revenge on the evil King Richard, who stole the beautiful Madalena, played by Mallory Jansen. Show also features Karen David, Luke Youngblood and Vinnie Jones.

Alan Menken is writing the music, and Glenn Slater is penning the lyrics. Menken, Slater and Fogelman recently collaborated on a musical episode of ABC’s “The Neighbors,” earning the program its first Emmy nomination for the series.

The pilot will lense early next year. ABC plans to recruit roughly 150 cast and crew from the U.K.
